~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause is not fame; prominence is not eminence. The person of the hour is not apt to be the person of the ages. It is what the unimportant do that really counts and determines the course of history. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung." - John R. Sizoo

The story of Johann von Dannecker, a celebrated sculptor, is often told. He worked for years upon a statue of Jesus. After finishing it, he brought a child into his studio, and, standing with her before the statue, said: "My child, who is that?"

She looked up at the wonderful work and said, "Sir, it is some great man."

The sculptor was smitten with disappointment. He said to himself: "This will never do. The statue must be a truer likeness of Him than this."

Again he worked with chisel and mallet for months. He prayed about his work in the vigils of the night, asking God to help him that he might reproduce the likeness of Christ in the marble so clearly that all might know Him.

Once again he brought a child into his studio and asked, "Who is that?"

The child looked at the masterpiece in silence; then, with a quiet tone of voice and brightened eyes, replied: "It is He who said, 'Suffer the little children to come unto Me.' " The sculptor was satisfied.
